Europe's Biggest Dance Show

Europe's Biggest Dance Show is a broadcast marathon presented by Euroradio and hosted by BBC Radio 1.

A unique marathon of DJ-sets going from country to country, Europe’s biggest Dance Show showcases the best of the dance music scene.

On 14 October 2022, the broadcast, presented by Euroradio and hosted by BBC Radio 1, will feature contributions from 11 EBU radios across ten countries all the way to Radio Promin in Kyiv, starting at 17.30 UTC (19.30 CEST) with BBC Radio 1 in London.

BBC Show host Danny Howard said: “Dance music is all about creating moments whether that’s on the dance floor at a festival or on the radio. There isn’t a bigger coming together than the whole of Europe on a Friday night celebrating the genre we love. Europe’s Biggest Dance Show is special because it’s so exciting to hear what the other countries have to offer from their respective scenes and artists. It’s truly inspiring and it’s also a privilege to showcase the UK sound with our friends across the continent, this really will be one of those moments you don’t want to miss.”

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of BBC Radio 1, said: “We launched Europe’s Biggest Dance Show in 2019 in the hope that we would unite listeners around the world and celebrate Europe’s incredible dance scene. I’m extremely proud that this year it is returning bigger and better than ever before with ten countries taking part who will be passing the dance baton around Europe, starting in London and ending in Kyiv. I’d like to welcome Ukraine who we are partnering with for the first time during what we know is such a challenging time for them.”
